Local Guide Where to Stay

Discover Texas

With modern cities, historic towns, beaches, deserts, national parks and the Rio Grande River, Texas certainly offers a unique landscape to explore.

The cities of Houston and Dallas are bustling labyrinths of towering skyscrapers, whilst San Antonio offers an altogether different feel; once a Native American village along the southern edge of the Texas Hill Country, the city is now a World Heritage Site, home to the famous Alamo.

For a truly Texan experience, Graham, in the heart of hill country, extends visitors the opportunity to live out childhood dreams of being a cowboy with a stay on a fully working ranch.

Getting Around

Texas is huge, so it’s highly unlikely you’ll want to try to see it all in one visit. Most visitors will explore either one or two cities or a relatively small section of the state. For those visiting major cities, it’s easy to fly in, use public transportation, and then fly or take the train to the next city. However, those who plan to see a variety of Texas cities will find that the most practical way to see Texas is by car.
